“The Catholic school pursues cultural goals and the natural development of youth to the same degree as any other school. What makes the Catholic school distinctive is its attempt to generate a community climate in the school that is permeated by the Gospel spirit of freedom and love.” Vatican II Gravissium Educationis
Parents are the first and primary faith educators of the their children. Raising children in the Catholic faith is both a blessing and a challenge. The links in this section provide resources for parents and families, including: prayers, websites for parenting and online games that support faith development in children. There are also Advent Family resources.
Religious Education Curriculum
Our schools follow the NWT Department of Education Program of Studies, but implement these programs with an overall perspective of faith. Additionally, YCS uses the Religious Education curriculum approved by our Canadian Bishops.
